Blue Sky

A wonderful spring morning dragged me out of my torpor and the hedgerow was found to be full of 7-spot Ladybirds. Every Hawthorn had a few basking in the sun. These two are on Ivy.

A few dry nights, and the moths are returning. This is the March Moth, Alsophila aescularia (male) , and is new to me.

And this is the Hebrew Character - Orthosia gothica:

Spring is definitley in the air - heard my first chiffchaff of the year this morning.
